Luis Javier
Luis was born in Guayaquil. He and his brother began working by performing plumbing repairs. Unfortunately, his brother died and he was left in charge of all of the customers that they had acquired while working together. In order to earn more income, Luis started a bazaar and stationery shop where he sells notebooks, pens, sheets of paper, and other items.

Every day, he leaves for work so that he can provide plumbing services and perform other household jobs for his customers. His wife manages the bazaar until he returns home. Luis is married and has three children. His wife looks after the business in their home. Their three children attend a state school.
